Baden-Württemberg: Death after a police operation: criticism of police training

Stuttgart (dpa / lsw) - After the death of a man after a police check in Mannheim, an association criticized the training of the police in the southwest. There must be more practice-oriented training for patrol officers, and this must also be repeated regularly, demanded the chairman of the state association of the German Society for Social Psychiatry, Klaus Obert, on Thursday on Südwestrundfunk (SWR).

From Obert's point of view, there should be more money for this. "Repeating training ties up resources. If there is to be a regular exchange of experts and officials, additional financial resources must also be made available," he told the broadcaster.

The Baden-Württemberg state police chief Stefanie Hinz rejected the criticism in the SWR. She sees no deficits in police training. "Our colleagues have to complete operational training on a regular basis, and dealing with people with mental and behavioral problems is a regular part of this training," Hinz explained.

A 47-year-old man collapsed during a police check in downtown Mannheim on May 2nd. The emergency services and a doctor present from the Central Institute for Mental Health in Mannheim, who had been looking for the patient with the police, took care of the man. But he later died in the hospital. According to the State Criminal Police Office, at least one video is circulating on the Internet showing how one of the police officers hits the man lying on the ground in the head. Investigations into the cause of death are ongoing.
